Watch Nick Markakis rob Conor Gillaspie with leaping catch

8 Comments

Watch as Orioles right-hander Nick Markakis leaps to rob White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie of a potential go-ahead two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning tonight:

Markakis went on to hit a two-run homer in his next at-bat and finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored, so he had himself a mighty fine evening. The Orioles won the game 8-2 and now have a 71-52 record on the year, putting them seven games up on the Yankees and 7 1/2 games ahead of the Blue Jays in the American League East.
